  1. Great list and lovely pictures! I wonder what a story at a vegtable market would be like?
    I said Prague too, there's something so magical about it. I really want to visit again, trying to convince my BF that he wants to go too! Have you read Daughters of Smoke and Bone by Lani Taylor?

    1. Yes! Daughter of Smoke and Bone was my inspiration for Prague! I am now intrigued and need more!

      I think there could be a story behind a vegetable farm. Ten Miles Past Normal was my inspiration there!

  6. Yay! Canada! I love the Darkness Rising series, but it's not really a true representation of Canadian life...still comes across as kind of exotic. Your European locations are super cool, and of course the Southern US. Beautiful Creatures' setting is so gorgeous and amazingly described. Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  8. I totally agree with the south! The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines was a good book to use that setting well. I also would love to read a book set around a bakery, that sounds fun and yummy!
